dylan - as I said earlier, your camera work is phenomenal. You're really capturing the spirit of sailing in these places, the pace, the sights, the sounds, you're putting us there. Great work.

And don't worry about the spruiking. It's a lot better than kvetching!

Now I'm getting all verklempt.

I think it means:

頭のおかしい

Of course, that's neither here nor there. Now, dylan, about that small flamethrower with which you heat your boat...

flamethower

fits right in with the general philosopy of the boat - "so far so good".

Seldom wear a life jacket - and I sometimes smoke a small cigar

I am reasonably confident that of three risks the last is easily the most dangerous thing I do

I put it on just for a short burst of heat - generally early to bed in a drunken stupour seems to be the way to get through the nights -

but the scenery, the light and the experience makes it all worthwhile

[I] tend to go down to the boat for two or three days at a time - just when the weather man is predicting interesting light and skies

but I feel a bit embarrassed about putting up postings about my own progs

that said I will be putting something new on yourtube every Friday until I close the gap between where the boat is and where the narrative has got to

unless I get another big block of work in which case it will all grind to a halt again and I will go back to filming trucks, cows and sheep etc

I am serious about the suggestions for music and improving the vids

Dylan

Last Segment

Dylan,

Where was the last segment filmed? I really enjoy the videos and eagerly look forward to the installments.

I had been thinking about sailing last Sunday, but the forecast was not very enticing with a high of 36 degrees. Then I watched your video with frost on the inside of the port lights and snow on the deck. I thought, "What would Dylan do?" So I bundled up and went for it. Really wasn't so bad.

It was interesting to see the segment about the Dutch raid up the Medway to Gillingham and Chatham. My Brother-In-Law lives there. The Chatham Docks are a very interesting day trip. I don't recall any mention of the Dutch raid at the museum. Guess they play it down as much as possible.

Thanks,

Warren H.
